Proper triangular $\mathbb{G}_{a}$-actions on $\mathbb{A}^{4}$ are translations

Adrien Dubouloz, David R. Finston and Imad Jaradat

Vol. 8 (2014), No. 8, 1959–1984

We describe the structure of geometric quotients for proper locally triangulable Ga-actions on locally trivial A3-bundles over a nœtherian normal base scheme X defined over a field of characteristic 0. In the case where dimX = 1, we show in particular that every such action is a translation with geometric quotient isomorphic to the total space of a vector bundle of rank 2 over X. As a consequence, every proper triangulable Ga-action on the affine four space Ak4 over a field of characteristic 0 is a translation with geometric quotient isomorphic to Ak3.
